Remy feeling strong on bike and on track ahead of Sachsenring raceday
Tech3 KTM Factory Racing rookie Remy Gardner returned to the action this morning on the tricky Sachsenring layout ahead of the afternoon qualifying sessions, both aiming for a good grid position.
Remy took a really good start to his day with a strong FP3 performance, finishing in P16 (1’20.588) only 0.059 seconds behind KTM Factory rider Brad Binder. After the final adjustments in FP4, qualifying time came around. The Australian had had a good rhythm all weekend so far had potential for a good qualifying session, but he did not manage to get a good enough fast lap, sometimes disturbed by the rest of the riders all waiting for each other. He will start the Motorrad Grand Prix Deutschland from P21.
“The first session of qualifying was a bit messy today because everyone was a bit out of trajectories or waiting for each other. I feel like I had the capacity to get a better position, but it is like this. I feel strong on the bike and on the track, so we will see what we can do tomorrow for the race.”
